In its report the Pensions Commission also proposes a National Pension Savings Scheme, which many workers would be automatically enrolled into.

The report has triggered a political row over who caused the pensions crisis and whether the reforms are affordable.

Pensions Secretary John Hutton said the government's response would be based on five tests: "Do the proposals promote personal responsibility; are they fair; are they affordable; do they simplify the system; are they sustainable
